Product description

Review

It's all there: what you need, and what exactly you need to do to achieve each stage of a perfectly classic tailored jacket, waistcoat or pair of trousers. Brilliantly presented and clearly explained., --Ooobop.com

I believe this book is the authority in classic mens tailoring. It really is the go-to book for many home sewers or instructors who want to give the most accurate methods for hand tailoring. Casey Stannard, Oregon State University, USA [Classic Tailoring Techniques] is one of a number of leading texts for mens tailoring. Dean Brough, Queensland University of Technology, Australia The [new] author clearly has a great depth of understanding about the learning process and how organically it must occur. --Amy Bond, Intercontinental University, USA

I am a traditional purist tailor teaching more modern students, and I agree with [the plan] to try to infuse custom techniques into a variety of designs and market levels. The fact is that most students are more interested in infusing RTW processes into bespoke production, and I want to give them good answers and guidance hence my wholehearted support of the addition of fusible and machine techniques. Carla Summers, Utah Valley University, USA I absolutely believe that Cabrera's book is the ultimate in the fine details of men's tailoring. . . I like the proposed revision. I absolutely believe focusing on the fine techniques and making them easier to understand rather than simplifying the whole process is a much better approach. . . I believe the proposed increase in photos that clarify the process will fill in the gaps. Not everything can be clearly understood by words alone and the photos help a lot. --Heather Milam, University of Alabama, USA
